>So all they really have to do, is learning the IL language?


How many people do you think would take the time to learn the IL language?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but disassemblers have been available for a lot
of languages. But not many are aware of this, or care to take the time to
learn and use them.

Actually, VB.Net has also made quite a few improvements to how desktop apps
are built too. It's the internet stuff that has received the hype.
